Representative Halford Announces Department Of Transportation Grants For Medina, Trenton, Humboldt

(NASHVILLE) — State Representative Curtis Halford (R-Dyer) joined with the Tennessee Department of Transportation today to announce grant awards for Medina, Trenton, and Humboldt.

The funding is part of the Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) and will be used for downtown enhancements in each city. In Medina, the $680,730 in grant funding will be used for the construction of sidewalks along the west side of Main Street. Trenton will use its $844,744 to construct sidewalks, upgrade signage, and install pedestrian lighting and pavement markings around the entire downtown corridor. The $439,200 in grant funding awarded to Humboldt will include the construction of sidewalks along Viking Drive, Spangler Drive, and Spangler Park.

“These grant dollars will play a critical role in improving safety and the overall health of our citizens,” said Representative Halford. “I believe they will also have a significant impact on the economic future of our community, and I want to congratulate our local leaders on their successful application. It was an honor to support their efforts, and I appreciate TDOT’s investment in our area.”

The TAP program began providing funds to local governments in 1991. More than $317 million in grants has been distributed by the department since to improve access and provide a better quality of life for the people of Tennessee. The money has gone to 267 communities across the Volunteer State to build sidewalks, bike, and pedestrian trails and to renovate historic train depots and other transportation-related structures.

Curtis Halford serves as Chairman of the House Agriculture & Natural Resources Committee. He lives in Dyer and represents House District 79, which includes all of Gibson and the majority of Carroll Counties. He can be reached by email at [email protected] or by calling (615) 741-7478.
